Student Tuition Organization

Give the Gift of Tuition Assistance


Ames Christian School is a member of the Heart of Iowa School Tuition Organization (STO). The STO provides tuition grants to students based on income guidelines, allowing families to choose a Christian education who might otherwise have to forego this option because of cost. 

Donors to the Heart of Iowa STO receive a 65% state income tax credit. This means if you donate $10,000, your state taxes are reduced by $6500. Donations to the STO might also qualify in some instances as a charitable deduction for federal taxes purposes. To find out about federal tax deductibility, we strongly encourage you to talk to your tax advisor.

Help support family choice in education by donating to the Heart of Iowa STO.
